"I think I could beat Trump" Dimon said Wednesday morning during an event at the company's Park Avenue building.

"I should not have said it", he said in a statement. Chief Executive James Dimon sounded off on President Donald Trump at a bank event on Wednesday, saying he could prevail over Mr. Trump in a presidential contest.

"I should not have said it". He added, pointing to himself, "And by the way this wealthy New Yorker actually earned his money". Proves I wouldn't make a good politician. "I don't think the American public looks at Trump as part of the elite".

Within an hour of blasting Trump, Dimon walked back his comments, CNBC reported.

Dimon has previously said he has no intention of running for the US presidency, saying he's not sure being a corporate leader translates well into the political arena.

The White House had no immediate response to a request for comment.

Dimon later said he wished he hadn't said that, adding, "I'm not a political expert".

Dimon, who has become a billionaire thanks to his stake in JPMorgan Chase, is a longtime donor to Democrats.

He served on Trump's Strategic and Policy Forum, where he came under fire for not stepping down as fellow executives did in the wake of Trump controversies.

You've been clear that you have grown exhausted of this narrative, that we are engaging in Dimon hagiography and that we sublimating our natural caustic voice in servitude of some horseshit political nonsense that will never be real. Further, Mr. Dimon made comments that his wealth was earned, and not given to him by his father, another jab at the President. Dimon has been described in the past as America's least-hated banker and perhaps among the most prominent among his ilk in the national scene.

Actor Bill Pullman portrayed Dimon in HBO's movie on the crisis 'Too Big To Fail'.
